TBB BLOG- HYDRATION VERSUS MOISTURIZATION- WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

What is the difference between hydration and moisturization?

  • When you moisturize your skin, you apply something to your skin that that locks in moisture.
  • Dry skin and flaky skin are signs that your skin barrier is not locking in or trapping enough moisture on it.
  • Moisturizers are great for this because they keep your skin looking and feeling plum and supple.¬†
  • Hydration is different from moisturization. Both deal with dry skin in different ways.
  • For example, skin that feels dull is a sign of dehydration.
  • This is the same for fine lines that turn into wrinkles that become noticeable.¬†
  • Hydrators are perfect for these type of scenarios- they get moisture to your skin and that moisture rehydrates and, it if is a good hydrator, nourishes your skin.¬†

How to properly hydrate and moisturize your body?

  • Note that we used the word body and not just skin.
  • This is because the best way to hydrate the body (and skin) is to drink more water.
  • Again, in order to properly or fully hydrate the body you need to drink a lot of water.
  • It makes sense because the human body is made up mostly of water.
  • Once the body is properly hydrated on the inside, it becomes easier to hydrate and moisturize the outside of the body or skin and hair.¬†
  • Water hydrates¬†your skin from the inside.
  • It also helps with moisturizing your skin.
  • For treating your skin on the outside there are powerful products that can keep your skin at the proper moisture level- one that is balanced.
